't be, in other words, that we issue a strong statement. that ll be some action that will follow. look, i think he will appreciate that. but the real question is how did we bring this appalling disaster, which is unfolding in syria, to an end. trying to get to a situation where you move to a different type of constitution in which people can have a say in e lebl electing the government and where the countries have put in a more stable issue. so this is fantastically difficult. again, what we've seen in the middle east, we saw it in iraq and now in syria. once you lift the lid off of these very repressive regimes, out comes this religious, ethnic, tribal tense. >> how worried are you about the situation in egypt? >> i think egypt is key to the region. you've got to be extremely worried when you see instability affecting egypt. this is, again, these are the birth pains of proper democracy in some ways. but this struggle is immensely important because obviously, what is important in these countries, where they've moved to a democratic system, is that there is a clear understanding. it's a
line, at least now, as we await action on the floor of the united states senate, if there's a deal or no deal, legislation could come up for a roll call vote. but the bottom line is since the house of representatives has gone into recess, at least for the night, the u.s. is, is going over that so-called fiscal cliff. we'll see what happens over the next few hours. tom foreman, thank you. much more on the fiscal cliff coming up. >>> there are serious ramifications for almost every american involved in this negotiati negotiation. we'll update when when we come back. ♪ [ male announcer ] this is karen and jeremiah. they don't know it yet, but they're gonna fall in love, get married, have a couple of kids, [ children laughing ] move to the country, and live a long, happy life together where they almost never fight about money.

calling other actions inappropriate elsewhere. >> yet, when it comes to our most beloved, innocent, and vulnerable members of the american family, our children, we as a society leave them every day utterly defenseless. >> while promoting a plan to train volunteers as a part of what the nra calls a national shield safety program, he restricting guns around schools. >> and in doing so, they tell every insane killer in america that schools are the safest place to inflict maximum mayhem with minimum risk. >> he has blood on his hands. >> despite being disrupted twice, making killers famous in the news and glorifying them in movies and video games. >> a child growing up in america today witnesses 16,000 murders and 200,000 acts of violence by the time he or she reach the ripe old age of 18. and does anybody really believe that the next adam lanza isn't planning his attack on a school he's already identified at this very moment? >> almost certainly part of this muscle flex was to remind congress members who might be tempted to join calls for gun reform that the nra has enormous influence
has blocked action of president assad at the united nations insisting there should be no regime change. but diplomats now say moscow increasingly doubts assad can survive in power as the armed opposition gains ground. some u.s. senators say now is the time for russia to act. >> this is an opportunity for russia to show the international community at large that you can be a constructive force at a time of great need. and you have a unique capability as a nation to do some good. >> reporter: for the u.s., the insurgents gains are a double-edged sword. some of the most ruthlessly affected fighters also are the most radicalized. washington is moving to declare one of those groups a terrorist organization. but the obama administration worries that the stronger radical fighters become the more armed combat, not political efforts to find a solution will decide the outcome in syria. early next week secretary clinton travels to morocco for a meeting of the so-called friends of syria group. the focus will be on the opposition with the obama administration taking the first steps towards officiall

congressional action, that exemption falls down to a million dollars, the rate you pay on that estate jumps up to between 41% and 55%. on top of that, there's a 5% tax on the portion of very large tax estates. the tax policy tenners estimates the number will jump from 2600 in 2012 to 53,000 in 2013. that's a huge increase from where we stand right now. as you know, some people call this double taxation, because people pay income tax on their earnings, they save it, and then the money gets taxed when they pass it on to their decendents. >> a lot of farmers are respecially concerned about this. let's say you leave land to your children or grandchildren. and to pay the estate tax, you have to sell it, basically, because you don't have that kind of money. >> this is a philosophical difference on the sides. congress does nothing. and those estate taxes revert to the levels they were before george w. bush was in office. those taxes were lowered to help us get through a couple recessions. this is unfair. people should be entitled to pass along their hard earned money. the concentration of wealth need

action on gun laws. >> and dr. drew, when you're looking at adam lanza, what in his medical history do you think investigators should be focusing more on? what are they looking into to paint a more complete picture of the person that we are talking about? and when you talk about -- and what about the toxicology report? what should they be looking at when that comes in? >> that is absolutely correct. i think the two areas that are going to give us the most information is his life online because very often people that have are difficulty with intimate connection with others, they have quite a rich life out there in the cyberspace and it can be bizarre and they can fuel some of these horrible sorts of preoccupations and violent tendencies. it doesn't cause them but the online life is going to be very revealing and for sure the tox kolgs are going to be critical. there's two big questions here. did somehow the medication either coming on or going off, maybe he was prescribed medication and didn't take it. we're going to find a lack of medication in his system or, god forbid, he got on to s

on president obama to now really try to take some decisive action. not to prohibit americans from arming themselves at home to protect their families but to prohibit the wholesale and easy way that you can go out and buy an ak-47, whatever it is you may want. nobody needs that, as he said, outside of the military or the police. >> the argument that i've heard from nfl players, current and former, retired nfl players, these are young guys, they're making a lot of money, they're pretty well known in their chunlt communities. a lot of times they say they buy a gun to protect themselves. because they're afraid of what could potentially happen. what does costas say about that? >> i think it's really a case of bravado, showing off. there's an amazing statistic. 624 arrests of nfl players. of those, 177 were drink or drug related involving usually driving. we saw this horrifying accident over the weekend with another nfl player, two from dallas cowboys. josh brent was driving the car, allegedly under the influence of alcohol, and his great friend jerry brown also a dallas cowboy, died. somethin
